Project Description

9ac70203

Our project is based on a simple idea, but feel free to let the ideas flow and take it any direction you please.

To get started, watch the video lessons in this class and take some time to practice the color mixing and blending techniques.

Then here’s what you’ll do:

  1. Check out photos of your favorite city and tape the skyline onto your canvas
  2. Paint your gradient sky and remove the tape
  3. Upload a photo and show us your beautiful work!
